  1. It’s no use; I’ve tried getting him to listen to Lecrae. But, alas, he doesn’t know good music when he hears it. 😦 And not only that, but then he has the nerve to say that he wouldn’t even call it “music”! 😡

  2. @Christian – I know! Shame on him. 🙂 Sounds like we need to pray for him. ;P
    Rap is a very different, powerful kind of music, because it deals with some of the really hard parts of life in a way that other music can’t. Every type of music has a different relationship with each part of our life.

    Have you gotten him to try Group 1 Crew? I ❤ their song Keys to The Kingdom.
